A couple funnies from comments on blogs:
'25% of all employees are pretty much debt-weight …'
'I spend my days applying for jobs which I don’t get and working at a job I HATE for minimum wage, which involves stalking shelves and not writing.' Oughta be easy to sneak up a a shelf, as they are immobile and insentient. That one, unfortunately, is from a journalism blog. Better the poor fool not get a job in the journalism trade.
And then, a bit of gaudy prose from a cigar site, describing a smoke – '… creamy, rich and mild at the same time it is so smooth to the palate that the smoke actually feels silky like chocolate milk, with hints of honey nuts and Maple.' Dunno if you'd wanna smoke that or eat it with strawberries for breakfast. Some of the silliness of wine has slopped over onto the honest seegar.
And, finally, this morning in the Vicad there was a subhed reading, 'Economic slump means less trees will be bought this year.' My goodness, a copy editor who doesn't know that trees are a count noun and get 'fewer' rather than 'less.' A small booboo but a telling one. I always want to blue-pencil the '10 items or less' signs in some stores, since items are also a count noun.
